called a liberal because i supported gay marriage and medical cannabis and i thought george w. bush's economic plan was a bad idea. turns out i wasn't liberal, i was prematurely mainstream. it is hard to imagine no social security, no medicare or medicaid. no civil rights act. no labor rights, no g.i. bill. all of the ideas were considered insanely radical before they were considered liberal then mainstream. but the status quo has been smearing the word "liberal" for dates that liberals are big spending, flag-burning america-hating tax junkies who only want to create child pornography and get you hooked on well ware fare because we think being poor is awesome while smoking crack. dude that, is not fair. all liberals are preachy but liberals are anti-pollution and exploitation of labor, anti-miss ongy and bigotry, pro freedom of the press and pro freedom of religion, pro private property and generally have better taste in music. it is true. liberal is not synonymous with democrat. when i meet someone who only knows of the fox bubble definition of liberal, i tell them the word comes f
an impeached president just like the republicans. then george w. bush. they say people weren't nice to george bush so we're going to be extra mean to barack obama. and they're constantly framing their policies. now, in the irs case, there has been a really pernicious use of the irs. would be to go after political enemies. but the only person who's done that, you've seen democratic leaning groups or liberal leaning groups complaining they were audited during the bush administration including the naacp. that is closer to the nixonian model than the irs. >> we saw congressional hearings, now we find out the irs was also looking for successors to acorn. even using those cute little acorns there looking for progressive groups. anyone that looks political. what happened to all of this noise we were hearing on the hill? >> remember it was elijah cummings that pointed out some time ago if it's being nixonian it's issa. issa was limiting the amount of information coming out to paint a specific picture that he wanted painted. remember there was that back and forth between cummings and issa where cummin
a call from george w. bush and the former president said to mitt romney don't worry about the debate. you are going to do fine. i know from my own experience the president is not going to be fully prepared. this is in fact a truism. and, in president to run for re-election often you lose the first debate that they have. there are a lot of reasons. one is they haven't been spoken to for four years in the way they are about to be spoken to by their opponent traded their aides are somewhat more respectful than their opponents on the debate stage. second, they think they're prepared because they have dealing with these issues and they don't feel like they need to freshen up three of he didn't have a good mock debate in his mock debates were from mediocre to really bad. the day of the debate i ran into one of his people in the morning in denver who said what do you think? this person said i'm really worried trade i don't think he's ready for tonight and i'm worried about what is going to happen. as a result of that the stakes were a lot higher in later debates and there was a great moment when
is to put us at an advantage and that is not an accurate statement. >> george bush kept a people on the cards. he got rid of virtually the entire top leadership of al-qaeda with the exception of osama bin laden who eventually was caught. >> now we agree. bring bush back. >> i don't see this as partisan. i am not making it partisan. >> you keep talking about the two presidents and this is america. if a come play sen see is our biggest enemy we should work together and say, look, do you trust the government, or do you not? skepticism is healthy in a democracy. every bit of skepticism they got today and for the administration was the same as the bush administration. i think that is probably a good thing. >> doesn't decimate mean you destroy everything but one-10th of one percent? >> i am not sure of the exact definition. >> can you get back to me 1234* we are talking talking about al-qaeda being decimated. >> there should be no doubt. today america is stronger and al-qaeda is on the path to defeat. we decimated al-qaeda's leadership. >> al-qaeda is on the path to defeat and bin lade
. this goes back to the presidency of george bush. we heard a lot of the same -- it's almost the exact same sort of scenario. you had some people on the far left in congress talking about impeaching president bush. and you had the leaders of their parties saying, we're not really interested in that. that's a side show, a side track. but for republicans it seems to be a fever dream they can't shake, that they really want to impeach this president. it seems odd, there's certainly one way to get rid of a president who's unpopular and incompetent. that's through an election. and i think obviously, that ship has sailed. >> and andy, you know, just to touch upon that if you could follow up on that, prior to the recent election, the gop way to go forward was to try to defeat him in this election, in fact some of them said it was their soul priority. we know that didn't happen. what should we be doing to making sure they are making gains in 2014 and 2016. is this the way to win elections? >> no, it's not, mara. i think the impeachment story is overblown. everybody is out of town. there's no real ne

believe the economy was so messed up by george bush that obama struggled mightily to overcome this horrible situation he inherited. the second reason is most americans believe republicans only care about rich people. and those are branding problems that the republican party has to to overcome. and it's hard to overcome it because you've got three obstacles; academia, hollywood and our major media, all of which are overwhelmingly liberal. when you say something, it's got to be interpreted through the filter of those three entities, and often it's been distorted. >> host: larry elder is our guest, this is booktv on c-span2 live from the los angeles times festival of books, campus of usc. mike's in fort worth, texas. hi, mike. >> caller: how's it going, larry? my -- pretty good. i'm a african-american democrat, but i agree with you one of the big problems in the african-american community is lack of fathers in the house. but i think, larry, when you say that, you kind of come off kind of harsh on black people. now, what's the reason behind the lack of a lot of fathers being in th

. there is an inspector general. all kinds of safeguards. i met with george bush when he talked about this program when it was first revealed by the new york times. when al qaeda calls somebody in the united states, i want to know who they are calling. that is the underlying philosophy of this program. that is the purpose. we are talking again. it tends to spill over into people thinking we are monitoring their content. we are not. these are metadata. it is outside of the envelope that is sent to your mailbox. that information. and the date stamp and the postage. >> jonathan stray, do you think the director painted an accurate picture of the program? >> i think there is a problem with metadata. it is not the content. who you talk to, who do associate with is in many cases more valuable the private information of what you are saying. there is looking at networks of people and communities and looking at their patterns of influence. i think it is metadata -- oversight -- and they have posters on the wall and regulations and agents monitoring it. i suspect there have been strong and good faith efforts to p

council approve as has happened before, president george bush with iraq and president bill clinton with the co kosovo bombing in 1999. >>> live to the state department with an update from there. >> good avenue. we want to emphasize state department officials, white house officials, pentagon officials are emphasizing both on the record and privately that the commander in chief, president obama, has not yet made any decision about the action the united states is going to take in syria beyond the fact there will be an action. sources tell me the likely targtsz of the u.s. campaign will include the delivery systems for bashar al assad's chemicalarsenal. we are said to be striking command facilities located in damascus but also syria short range missile launches looking to conduct strikes against those targets. i'm told bashar al assad's presidential palace, some of the governmental military locations in damascus will not be targeted because a lot of key systems have been evacuated. a lot of artillery positions in the syrian government are located in mountains outside the city and those
. >>> president george bush is still recovering from a blockage in his heart. as some health experts or officials are pointing out, there may be good in the doctor's discovery and not just for the former commander in chief. cnn's tom foreman covers that in this "american journey." >> reporter: in office and out, george w. bush has been regarded as many as the most fit president ever, mountain biking, running, swimming, golfing, weight lifting and laboring on his ranch. his annual physicals while in office found him in excellent health with no history of hypertension or diabetes and low to very low coronary artery disease risk. when physicians instert certificat inserted a stent, some people were sur viced. >> people should not assume that just because they exercise a lot they don't necessarily have a heart problem. >> reporter: he wrote a book on the impact of celeb pretty health issues called when illness goes public. when famous people face illness, this is the good that almost always follows. public awareness and action rises sharply. when former first lady betty ford disclosed she had breast
by liberals during the bush years, he has got to. george bush got resolution 1441 from the united nations that could at least make the plausible case, meant, invading iraq was legal under international law. if he doesn't get approval from the u.n. security council then barack obama will be violating international law. it will be an illegal act of war. and, that doesn't mean i'm against it necessarily or that i think president obama should care one wit about approval from the u.n. i don't think the united states should care about the u.n. at all. i think that the idea that somehow we give a veto to china and russia about the morality or efficacy or legitimacy of our foreign policy is bizarre but that is a system that liberals have been championing for a very, very long time including barack obama and the double-standards here are, you know, are just so daunting for the president, given what he had said about, you know, foreign policy when he was a candidate. that he is now going back on all of it and he is in a real pickle. alisyn: well, that is exactly right. so why would the president ac

of george bush for doing what we did in iraq. now, that's inconsistentents now. it's really baffling to see the people on the left just rallying behind president obama, yeah, go ahead. fire the missiles! we're with you. but the people who were so antiwar and anti-conflict in the past, now they're ready to go without even knowing where we're going. >> gretchen: so many unanswered questions still today. but one of the big questions this morning is what kind of chemical weapons does syria actually have? what evidence does the united states have? heather nauert is here to break it down. >> we are learning interesting information this morning. the syrian deputy foreign minister telling reporters that sarin gas was used in several parts of the country, but he claims the rebels were the ones responsible for that attack. this assertion is not banged by the us -- backed by the united states which believes the syrian government unleashed the attack and is the party responsible. but what is interesting about this statement, gretchen, is that it is the first time we're hearing from a syrian government
me say, george bush kept a picture of people with the cards, he got rid of virtually the entire top leadership of al qaeda with the exception of osama bin laden who was eventually caught. >> why are we making this -- i don't see this as partisan. the most dangerous -- we keep talking about the two presidents, this is america, and if complacency is our biggest enemy, we should all work together and say look, do you trust the government or not. skepticism, healthy in a democracy, and every bit of skepticism they got today for the administration was the same as the bush administration used to do. i think that's probably a good thing. >> decimate means you destroy everything but 10%? >> i think maybe, not sure about the technical definition. >> can you get back to me while we roll the tape where they talk about al qaeda being decimated. >> there should be no doubt today america is stronger and al qaeda is on the path to defeat. we decimated al qaeda's leadership. al qaeda is on the path to defeat and bin laden is dead. >> we decimated al qaeda central, we eliminated osama bin laden. >>
's not a question of do we trust president obama or george bush, the real question is are we going to trust government palin. my answer is no. cenk: i would go further, though. i would ask the question can we trust president obama. they always say it's in the future. well, my god, what if a republican came into office. we had a republican named bush. we elected a guy who put up a lot of placards that said change and then decided not to change a damn thing and then expanded the programs. we found out yesterday that the d.e.a. is actually using some of the spying to go after criminal cases, normal average criminal cases in the united states and covering it up from the prosecutors, judges and of course the defense attorneys. so, it's here. it's already here. so, canning man grayson, i ask you as i often do, what in the world happened to president obama that the guy who ran on change said no, i love what the bush-cheney administration did and i'm going to continue it and build upon it? >> well, it turns out that president obama in some respects is a deeply conflicted person who always looks for
